Tomorrow is the last day of summer, so it's time to roll out some fall favorites in the kitchen! You will be seeing some soup, chili, cobbler, and more brisk-weather meals. But first, here is a recipe for homemade low-sugar cinnamon almond granola! It's a great fall kick off, since it pairs perfectly with the apples you're about to get at the apple-picking orchard. It also pairs great with greek yogurt or almond milk, or better yet- eat it by the handful! Careful... it's dangerously good.
This recipe was inspired by and tweaked from a recipe in the Healthyish Cook Book.
Ingredients (serves 6-8)
3 cups uncooked oats
1/4 cup chopped lightly salted almonds
1/2 cup light maple syrup
1/4 cup melted coconut oil
1/2 cup raw creamy almond butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp cinnamon
Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Mix the wet ingredients in one bowl and stir until well incorporated. Mix the dry ingredients in a large bowl and pour over the wet mixture. Combine with a big spoon until all oats are covered.
On a aluminum foil lined baking sheet, spread the oat mixture evenly. Bake for 40-45 minutes, or until the oats turn a light brown color. The photo at the bottom shows what color the oats should look like!
Let them cool for 20-30 minutes before putting in a zip lock bag. The granola will be good for up to a week if left out, or a couple weeks if kept in the fridge.
